What are we each entitled to in our divorce settlement?

What does the law say about how to split the house, how to share pensions and other assets, and how much maintenance is payable.

What steps can we take to reach a fair agreement?

The four basic steps to reaching an agreement on divorce finances are: disclosure, getting advice, negotiating and implementing a Consent Order.

What is a Consent Order and why do we need one?

A Consent Order is a legally binding document that finalises a divorcing couple's agreement on property, pensions and other assets.

Do you need help sorting out a fair financial settlement?

Our consultant service offers expert advice and support to help you reach agreement on a fair financial settlement quickly, and for less than a quarter of the cost of using a traditional high street solicitor.

Absolute granted already. From paying all the bills in the FMH and needing a replacement car I was about £20k in debt when it was granted. I''m trying to keep on top of it and am not running debts up for the sake of it but the mortgage alone is £1000 a month. Can I include all debts up to financial settlement or only those before absolute?

My inclination would be to say that the Court will make a decision based on the facts as they exist at the time the Court makes its decision. So I''d say - in principle at any rate - you can include all debts.
